not useless, just turned from very good player to average player
also gla0ve without dev1ce is useless :D
Yes indeed, without the Astralis core baiting for him he has nothing.
This really shuts up some blind fanboys of his finally
device so bad without astralis LUL he proved that hes nowhere near the likes of s1mple zywoo
Just don't pick ancient men.
Only teams that are good on it are GAMBIT, FPX.
DEV0CE 40% HAIR LOSS KEKW
NIP CEO CRYING KEKW
Polish flag still butthurt about anonymo game aha
gets dropped best weapons, put in best positions, gets baited for, 52ADR...
at what point is NIP gonna stop treating him as a superstar ???
Gla1ve is useless with and without dev1ce tho
1 million dollar decoy XD, eco40%vice so bad
Dev1ce aim is really good but he never gets the chance to do anything and his awareness is kinda bad too always see him dying without even shooting once
Im so happy, just fuck device for Anonymo :)
device was with same teammates for a very long time. plus the fact they were all pretty good players themselves.
NIP players dont have the same level of consistency (except REZ). device is more like a team player who has above average (for tier 1) awp skills. he is not s1mple or zywoo with insane awp skills and that is showing. if his teammates cannot make the space for him to hold the ground, he can be easily neutralised.
obviously we cannot compare plopski and hampus with magisk and gla1ve. LNZ/ZTR is a joke rn. i believe even device must be pissed off at what is going on. he wasnt looking happy yesterday against complexity.
Being an awper for a team is a key role where the player needs to understand how the rest of the team is going to act, react, etc. He's still pretty new to the team so I'd probably suggest to give it more time to get him properly implemented. Looking at his matches stats he only began to have some below-average series in the last matchups and had a quite good start actually. The 5th man thing is not a good thing for Nip as well. They should have just stuck to one guy since the start and look at it in the long run because now it's not only him getting implemented but also another supportive rifler even though device can't fully know EVERYTHING about his mates yet. It's like him being part of a mix team or something xd
Also mates are also a thing, you have someone like Plopski who could do any role quite good but noone extremely well? On off rez as well.. idk. The core needs more time, practice and with it comes the STABILITY. Because without the stability the Awping role of device won't work, same case for Gambit. His role is not to play a simple style awp even if he could do that, what nip is trying to do is to get that stability team going on - a thing that will be better in the longer run for sure. Just look at Navi and Vitality.. They're literally the definition of inconsistent also because of their style. Their "stability" is not team focused but rather on getting carried by one guy.. And that's not so smart
Device's biggest issue is how often he loses concentration or doesn't pay as much attention as he needs to, he suffers from a lot of issues that can be seen when you see the finer points of his plays, lots of times he's caught off guard, he relies too much off of just his aim alone and the IGL to lead him and tell him what to do, the reason he worked so well under Glaive is because Glaive told him every single step to take and what to do, NiP don't have an IGL that is constantly in the team, they keep switching them out and they're not getting the types of IGL that Device would need to flourish and be at his best. Device needs a holding hand when it comes to paying attention and what to concentrate on. He has fantastic aim and reactions but that's all at this current time.
The only thing that I can understand, is the idea of "NIP SYSTEM" that was sold to dev1ce the idea that this system with Dev1ce at the center of NIP would make him the Zywoo and S1mple of the Counter-Strike. Was a scam. Now NIP got Jebaited.
IGL, after listening to Hampus's interview, I was not really sure how effective of IGL he will be. Plopski, I had hopes with is severely underperforming. REZ is the only person who has been consistently delivering.
Like some of the other people mentioned. Dev1ce is king of passive Awping. but for Passive AWP to work you need an effective team. Team who is in sync. Unfortunately NIP aint one, yet (atleast).
